Traversing the full range of human experiences with grace, The Long Weeping
insists that solace awaits on the other side of even the blackest tumult, if only it can be perceived and grasped.
Window will be on display until September 24.
Together with Lee Karen's Stow's exhibition and the Weeping
Window, the Senedd is displaying two pieces which invite us to take time to contemplate how so many fought and died to protect democracy and our way of life.
The poppy sculpture Weeping
Window at Caernarfon Castle
Window is one of two sculptures taken from the installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red poppies and original concept by artist Paul Cummins and installation designed by Tom Piper by Paul Cummins Ceramics Limited in conjunction with Historic Royal Palaces.
Woodhorn Museum was the first location for the one called Poppies: Weeping
Window which it displayed as a cascade from an old colliery winding wheel which is now a scheduled ancient monument.
Window's next destination is St Magnus Cathedral, Kirkwall, from April to June, and then the Black Watch Museum, in Perth, from June to September.
Thomas Dixon's Weeping
Britannia takes as its central premise that the British "stiff upper lip", far from being the defining characteristic of the nation throughout its history, was in fact the creation of a particular historical moment, out of which has grown a transhistorical myth of national restraint.
Window is composed of thousands of poppies cascading from a top-floor window.
It all started with a visit to the Weeping
Window during its time at Woodhorn by a craft group which meets at Bedlington Community Centre, and its leading artists Isla Haddow and Sheila Biggs.
Word of the remarkable discovery quickly spread after a neighbor witnessed the statue weeping
song, whale song, woman song weeping
inside her child.
